This Week’s Topic :  Songs and Books

This week we have another relatively open-ended topic. I was originally going to look at songs inspired by books; any books. But then as I went along in my research I realized not only did half of my entries draw inspiration from Middle Earth, but there are all from about the same time period. So here you go folks- ten songs inspired by The Lord of the Rings. The 70’s really, really liked Hobbits.

  1. Ramble On – Led Zeppelinfellowshipofthering
  2. The Battle of Evermore – Led Zeppelin
  3. Stairway to Heaven – Led Zeppelin
  4. Misty Mountain Hop – Led Zeppelin
  5. Stagnation – Genesis
  6. The Wizard – Black Sabbath
  7. Rivendell – Rush
  8. The Necromancer – Rush
  9. The Gnome – Pink Floyd
  10. The Lords of the Ring – Styx

And this isn’t even the entirety of inspired songs- there are dozens, if not hundreds more floating around out there! Do you have a Tolkienesque Rock Jam that tops your list? Let me know!
